What I Like: The concept. As with all the books in this series, I applaud the author for tackling difficult subjects for kids. He does a wonderful job relieving fear children may have about death. He describes both the birth and the passing as a time of celebration.
What I Dislike: This book does a wonderful job explaining life and death and relinquishing fears associated with the two, but it doesn't discuss eternity (as the title clearly suggests). Not until readers get to the backmatter is eternity described in any way. I expected the story to talk about Heaven and eternal life. It didn't. Furthermore, the illustrations were not very interesting.
Overall Rating: Poor.
Age Appeal: 4-8
